Ah yes! Happy New Year all.

Here's a good Gord song for today:

The dead leaves of autumn
That cling so desperately
Must fly before the cold October winds
Their simple lives have ended
Must they be born to die again
Oh may the light of freedom shine
For all the world to see
And peace and joy to all mankind
Through all the years to be

For soon the leaves will die
And the long hard wind will blow
May this world find a resting place
Where the peaceful waters flow

happy new year to all from the land of OZ (got in there before Ron did!)
Hopefully it didn't rain as much as it has here!

Walls: I know you meant the greeting for us all but I just took it extra personally. :0)

But that's what walls are for. Will have a great 2002, thank you. And I'm sure you'll stay afloat. Again, a great one.

Indeed, it was a greeting for all, but it was directed at SilverHeels, so in a sense, you can take it extra personally.

I don't know if I'm using this right, as it's my first time on here. I was wondering if anyone could tell me why "Black Day in July" isn't included on GL's hits albums or his Songbook. Is it a legal thing, or does he no longer like the song?

Any knowledge on this would be much appreciated.

Perhaps it's because he doesn't feel it's relevant any more and he doesn't do "political" statements anymore. he's said something along that line.

In my opinion, no composer/songwriter exceeded Lightfoot in placing social issues, and the conflicts derived there from, into such a clear and easily understood context and perspective. The statements and positions Lightfoot made through his lyrics about questions related to the nature, yet alone the cost, of war, the assaults on nature and the environment, the foolishness of politics, the inane clashes within a society, and the burdens placed on those expected to "work" to advance that society, are among the best that have been written. There has always been this keen sense of social consciousness, questions about certain acts of humanity, and a sensitivity to the plight of “any person”, that has been weaved, now and then, throughout a number of works over a substantial period of time. I wouldn't speculate about "Black Day In July" relative to any albums except to say that it did appear on Disk 1 of 3 of the Gordon Lightfoot (36 All-Time Favorites) presented by GSC Music/Cema Special Markets. Yet, whatever is said, or ignored, about "Black Day in July", it certainly was ahead of its time, and one of the few songs that addressed the events that sparked some controversy that summer.
